Winter in the mountains. This fellow is knee deep in snow and frosted with flakes. Snow is falling all around him. 

I used base paint in tints of taupe to create the distant background of trees in the snowfall. Then this background color was overlaid with zinc and titanium pigments to form the misty background and the crisp drifts and falling flakes. The horse is shades of burnt sienna mixed with black. Brrrr. I hope he stays warm.
